Cons: Character concerns (left the team due to personal reasons…was reinstated the dismissed from the teams for what were reportedly substance abuse problems)…Isn’t the greatest open field tackler, goes for the big hit too often…a little wiry in his build
Round projection: 6th to UDFA
Jackson is athletic, quick and not afraid to punish on the field, but was plagued by some off-the-field issues. In one of the most high-profile arrests of the college football season, Jackson was arrested in an armed robbery with his teammates Nu’Keese Richardson and Mike Edwards. Richardson and Edwards were dismissed from the team, and Jackson was given a three-game suspension.
The suspension, however, could turn out to be a blessing in disguise for Jackson. Immediately following Jackson’s arrest, Berry moved him into his off-campus home to help mentor him and set him straight. Whether Berry’s leadership and insight rubbed off on Jackson remains to be seen.
